This was my first experience making soap at home and I did it using a kit I brought from Hobbycraft. When I was given handmade soap as a bridal shower favour I was inspired to make my own.
I ended up making a green tea soap which smelt gorgeous and lathered up really nicely. I struggled with the melting of the soap base as it just kept turning hard and clumpy. It would not stay liquid and was impossible to pour. As a result there was a bit of wastage however I was happy that I managed to produce some soap looking bars in the end. These will be given as gifts!
